A New Document Sharing System Based on a Semantic Hierarchical Peer-to-Peer Network

Anis Ismail, Aziz Barbar, Mohammad Hajjar, and Mohamed Quafafou
Abstract—Peer-to-Peer (P2P) applications have been widely used in last years. A P2P application is usually used for sharing Music, Movies, Games, and other files. These applications work by permitting to a Peer to download files by assembling it from multiple sources on the network at the same time. In this paper, we present a new application that permits to share enriched scientific documents. We have developed a P2P application based on community architecture structured around Peers and Super-Peers. This application allows the sharing of references between researchers from different communities. The references are shared by researchers eventually augmented by annotations. Annotation allows a researcher to comment or give an opinion on a specific reference. This application was applied at the Lebanese University (IUT, Sidon) to allow instructors to share their annotations, comments, and other information.

Index Terms—Peer-to-peer, scientific documents, annotations, communities.
